Rated 2 out of 5Â by craftybee Only good for 2 years, at best
I received this a couple of years ago as a gift and it worked with only a few hiccups the first 1.5 years. Since then, it has been one problem after another. First, the buttons stopped working. After a few days, they started working again, except one (top right), and the action of each button changed. I could still manage to get my workout done until a few months ago when my heart rate randomly stopped registering for minutes at a time until it wouldn't register at all. I replaced the battery and now it only registers very intermittenly so I no longer have an accurate calorie count. Not happy at all, especially since I stayed with Polar over another brand.

I am still in love with my Polar FT4 after 5 years! I've changed the batteries in the watch and the heart rate monitor strap about twice in this time period and it is still working great and looks like new! I use it during every workout, which is basically every day because I'm an athlete, and I definitely prefer it over my other daily activity monitor because it has the more accurate HR reading due to the chest strap! I also just love wearing the watch around because it is so cute and durable. Thank you Polar for such a great product!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Minty Good basic tracker
I've had this for almost 2 years and it's served me well. The basic Heart rate monitoring and calorie tracking work great, and the strap fits well. I did find it comes undone occasionally while running if I haven't been careful while putting it on, and it may need to put on one way up for best grip. I'm finding that it is developing a sharp spot on the plastic connector just recently.
My biggest dissappointment is in the WebSync - FT4 doesn't come with an uploading connector. Also, the free App you can get doesn't work on any of my Android devices. So I am stuck with the watch only, and no further info from uploading the data to my computer.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Raurunner Used to Love it but now not so much
I bought this item a couple of years ago. For the first 2 years it worked like a charm, then it started malfunctioning. It wouldn't continually keep track of my heart rate. So I replaced the batteries in the watch and chest piece. Worked for a couple of days then started malfunctioning again. So I bought a new chest strap only worked for a day before it started malfunctioning again. Not really sure what to think now. Not very happy with this product now and irritated.
